Former commissioner to run for state Senate | The Augusta Chronicle

Former Augusta Commission member Joe Bowles plans to run for the District 22 state Senate seat next year. He said Saturday he’ll announce plans to run as an independent when Sen. Hardie Davis officially announces that he’ll run for mayor of Augusta.

District 6 Commissioner Joe Jackson also said Saturday that he’s running for mayor. District 4 Commissioner Alvin Mason announced last week that he’ll run for the job. District 2 Commissioner Corey Johnson has also said he’ll run for mayor.

Bowles said he’s running to get “somebody in Atlanta to represent Augusta.”

“When was the last time a member of our delegation passed a meaningful bill, besides Barbara Sims?” he asked.

Duh. When Charles Walker was Senate majority leader?
